Introducing Center Pointe: In the Center of It All

Dec 9, 2020 | Amenities, Community News

Something new and exciting is happening at The Village at Gainesville. Independent living and assisted living residents can now enjoy a rebranded and repurposed space designed to increase resident satisfaction and reinvent senior living as we know it.

“We’re incredibly excited about the all-new Center Pointe,” says Wayne Vinson, Sales Leader at The Village at Gainesville, a senior living rental community that offers independent living, assisted living and memory support. “Our goal is to meet the needs of our current residents and attract new residents through enriching lives.”

Center Pointe is an expansion of The Village’s focus on supporting and engaging residents. The new space will engage residents through health and wellness opportunities including the state-of-the-art Fitness Center and iN2L, a leading senior-focused technology platform. The state-of the-art engagement software offers opportunities for social interaction, cognitive and physical exercise and therapy, education and more.

“We’ve completely reorganized our Resident Services department as well,” says Wayne. “We’ve reinvented our security, transportation, concierge, salon and spa to meet our vision and provide consistency in service excellence.”

One of the upgrades offered by Center Pointe is Bistro 27 West. This new venue offers Starbucks coffee, providing a trendy new option for residents. The Center Pointe dining room also received a refresh and was brought up-to-date with more modern design features, including decorative glass screens.

The billiards room was converted into the Library and Media Center, which provides computers, an Ipad, computer software and a keyboard designed for low-vision users, a digital book viewer that helps enlarge books and offers downloadable audio for those with limited vision, a vast book collection and open spaces for reading and card games. Residents are also encouraged to bring their own devices to the space to enjoy the free Wi-Fi.

Center Pointe is also home to the new Morrow Performing Arts Center. This big, open space is a perfect spot for large classes and performances. Other rooms that have been refreshed include the The Mr. & Mrs. Harold R. Blalack Conference Room, Classroom, Chapel, and the Homer & Hazel Walter Meditation Garden. Video projection and conferencing features have been added, as well as a hearing loop setup. This is a special type of hearing aid that allows hard-of-hearing residents to “plug in” to what’s going on, allowing for seamless enjoyment and participation.

The Robert & Anne Byrd Serenata Spa & Salon was invigorated with more market-relevant items and services. We’ve installed senior-friendly and safe pedicure chairs, a waxing station and a treatment room for massage or other services. Residents will also be able to purchase personal care items.

Finally, a new space has been created to house wellness-centric features and services. At the new The Maria Kay Vitality and Wellness Center, residents can visit on-staff nurses, work out at the fitness center or take advantage of all the programming available through iN2L.

“There is nothing like this in Gainesville,” says Wayne. “We are excited to be the first in our community to offer these updated services and approaches for today’s active and independent seniors. These renovations will position our community as a forward-thinking place for Baby Boomers to enjoy their retirement with everything they could ever want or need – now and in the future.”
